Cool Find: Google Translate

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I’m still here. Busy podcaster is busy. Haven’t had any time to produce any content lately, even blog posts. So sorry! I’m hoping to have some time to record an episode soon. In the meantime I’ll try and find the time to kick out some blog posts such as this one. […]


Cool Find: Pixelmon mod for Minecraft – gotta catch ’em all!

One of the most successful media franchises to come out of Japan is Pokémon. Second only to that juggernaut Mario in terms of success and lucrativeness, Pokémon grew from its humble beginnings as a Game Boy role playing game to encompass not only a great many sequel video games, but tons of derivative works, including […]


Cool Find: VLC Media Player for iOS (Updated: Also for Android too!)

Update: DJ City of TJX points out that VLC is available for Android too! Unfortunately it’s still labeled a “beta” but from what I’ve heard it works quite well. And hey, it too is free!

Greetings. First of all, yes we did go to Anime Expo, and we returned safely, albeit not in perfect health […]


Cool Find: Lepai LP-2020A+ and Dayton Audio B652 = Best Computer Speakers Ever

Editor’s note: Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of new episodes/blog posts. Things have been even crazier than normal for me and I just haven’t had time to put anything together. We also have some changes in our line-up of co-hosts. Stay tuned, there will be a more official announcement on this later.

I have […]


Cool Find: Crackle is yet another way to watch anime for free

Today’s anime fans are pretty damn lucky. Gone are the days when you had to wait time immemorial for (insert name of random anime distributor) to dole out the next DVD of whatever anime series you’re following, which of course you’d have to pay like $30 or more for. And if you suddenly got the […]


Cool Find: Dominos iOS App Featuring Hatsune Miku

As anime and other facets of otaku culture become more mainstream, Japanese companies have started to wake up and take notice, and have started marketing their products and services to the otaku demographic. Oftentimes products and services use some form of anime mascot character, while other companies opt for tie-ins with popular anime titles such […]


Cool Find: MikuMikuMoving, a new 3D animation creation program to replace MikuMikuDance

I’ve written before about MikuMikuDance (MMD), a really powerful (and totally free) 3D animation creation program put out by members of the Vocaloid fan community, that said community uses to create those really awesome Vocaloid videos you see on sites such as YouTube and NicoNicoDouga. (In fact it is often used to create videos from […]


Cool Find: Planetarian – Dream of Little Star kinetic novel for iOS devices – from Key!

A while ago I wrote about why you, my fellow otaku readers, need to get excited about the iPad modern tablet computers. (I’ll even extend this to all tablet-type devices in general. I’ve nothing against you Android or (even) Windows 8/Windows RT/whatever the hell it’s called today folks.) And just about all of my predictions […]


Cool Find: LittleMaidMob Mod for Minecraft

I’ve written before of my love for Minecraft. With its completely open-ended sandbox gameplay, beautiful landscapes and caverns to explore, monsters to fight, items to craft and tremendous potential for creativity, it’s truly a game without limits. Plus it has a vibrant community of modders who have come up with all sorts of interesting hacks […]


Cool Find: The Shazam App tells you what music you’re listening to

One of my favorite events at any anime convention I go to is the AMV contest, where creators cut together videos consisting of their favorite anime set to music. Usually the videos try and convey some sort of story, and are generally categorized into various themes (drama, comedy, action, etc.). Often, AMV contests are a […]
